I was thinking today about the value of worship, and what I mean by worship is the disciplining and directing of our thoughts toward God as we listen to music and sing songs unto God. I have been in several discussions this week where the huge difference in people’s situations and life experiences was the simple step of committing to position themselves in a worship environment. God made us to be worshippers of Him.

·       Worship will clear your thoughts in times of confusion.

·       Worship will calm fears and settle anxiety.

·       Worship will change your mood.

·       Worship will lift your eyes above your circumstances.

·       Worship will alter your negative opinion of others.

·       Worship will help you overcome temptation.

·       Worship will move you from happiness to true joy.

·       Worship will help you make a tough decision.

·       Worship will change you from the inside out.

·       Worship will heal your emotions.

·       Worship will correct you before someone else does.

·       Worship will help you pray correctly.

Wow, I could go on and on with this list. Feel free to add to this list in your own words, but if you are not regularly committing yourself to Jesus-honoring music, meditation and song, you will miss these great benefits.

Psalm 92: 1-4 ~ It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
to sing praises to your name, O Most High;
to declare your steadfast love in the morning,
and your faithfulness by night,
to the music of the lute and the harp,
to the melody of the lyre.
For you, O Lord, have made me glad by your work;
at the works of your hands I sing for joy.
